Bienvenue à L'Etoile du Nord!

L’Etoile du Nord French Immersion (LNFI) is the only French immersion school in St. Paul. Students who begin at LNFI in kindergarten or first grade become functionally bilingual by the end of 5th grade and can continue their French studies through middle and high school. With many native French speakers on staff and a highly-involved parent community, LNFI offers remarkable learning opportunities to our students.
